The Secret to Student Success? Teach Them How to Learn.
Metacognition: Thinking about and determining what you know from what you don’t - and focus on what you don't know (yet).
Often - It’s not until you’re asked to explain what you know (parts of a concept) - that the lightbulb goes on and you realize what you don’t know. Make this happen before your test by pre-quizzing yourself.
Practice recalling information: and re-membering concept parts.
